Railway House

Bu sawl busnes yn Railway House, Y Wesh, yn ystod y ganrif a aeth heibio.  Y mae’r enw Railway House yn dyddio o gyfnod yr 1860au neu gynt – ymhell cyn i’r reilffordd ddod i’r ardal (Pam? – wel, pwy a wyr?)  Dyma ychydig o hanes y lle mewn lluniau a thoriadau papur newydd.

Isod, gwelir geiriau hysbyseb a ymddangosodd yn y County Echo ar yr 22ain o Ionawr, 1903.

There have been several businesses in Railway House, West Street, during the past century. It was known as ‘Railway House’ since at least the 1860s – long before the railway arrived in the vicinity of the town. (We wonder why?) Here is some of the history of the property as seen through photos and newspaper cuttings.

Below is the wording for an advertisement which appeared in the County Echo on 22nd January, 1903.

“Public Announcement. The Partnership hitherto existing between THOMAS & DAVIES, DRAPERS, OUTFITTERS, AND MILLINERS, RAILWAY HOUSE, FISHGUARD, Has been DISSOLVED by mutual arrangement. The business will be carried on in future by W. O. Thomas, who begs to return his grateful thanks for the very liberal support accorded him in the past, and trusts, by strict personal attention to his business, to merit a continuance of public patronage. SALE NOW ON! SALE NOW ON!! To make room for NEW GOODS.  Great Reductions in all Departments. Inspection Invited. Prices Marked in Plain Figures. Note the Address—   W. 0. Thomas, Railway House, Fishguard.”
